About the Book

Matia Evans has it all, except for one thing: she can’t see color. With an adopted family who loves her, a company she helps her father run, and more prospects than she knows what to do with, she’s in no place to complain that her world is limited to shades of gray, black, and white.

Her inability to perceive color isn't the only strange thing about her: all souls have shadows, and she can see them. Unfortunately, there are humans who are worse than monsters. Worse, there are real monsters in the world, and they view humans as prey or as mates.

If Matia doesn’t want to become a victim, a pawn, or a trophy bride of the supernatural, she must use every bit of her strength and cunning. Her freedom and survival depend on embracing the darkest parts of her soul, but if she does, she risks becoming the newest—and most dangerous—monster of all.

In a great new book by prolific author R.J. Blain, Shadowed Flame is a story that most readers will find themselves reading from start to finish all in one sitting, it is just that addictive! Follow the story of the young and beautiful Matia Evans, a young woman who has everything she could ever want, except one thing. She can't see color. What she can see, however, are the shadows of the souls that all humans possess. And some of those she sees are terrifying. Besides the evil of humanity, there are also real monsters in the world, and Matia is sought after as a trophy bride. Will Matia's true destiny be revealed to her? You'll need to read this book to find out! I so enjoyed Shadowed Flame. Author R.J. Blain has done a fantastic job in creating a character that her readers will relate to, connect with and truly care about. Even in this fantastic environment, the story comes across as realistic, and that is not always an easy feat for an author to accomplish. Any readers looking for a great work of urban fantasy, an exciting and adventurous tale, a new story line with a unique and strong female lead, or just a great read of fiction should definitely give Shadowed Flame a try. I highly recommend this book, and I am very much looking forward to reading more from the obviously talented author, R.J. Blain, as soon as I possibly can!
Shadowed Flame starts with a bang, and the action continues in typical Blain fashion. Matia is an unusual and strong character, very accepting of her differences with rather unique coping mechanisms. The male protagonist is a little different for a W&W book; he's not totally sane and a little cruel in his instability, but he's so likeable! Matia's family is hilarious. The pace never lags, and the plot held my attention. Since Shadowed Flame is a stand alone, previous knowledge of the Witch & Wolf world is not necessary, but I highly recommend all the W&W books.
This is, by far, one of the better written stories in the YA/Paranormal genre. And while there is a romance, it is so well written I hate to call it "Paranormal Romance." Yes, it is there, but it is only a portion of a rich tapestry of story, character and world. (Oh, and it is 'clean' too. We don't have to know exactly 'how' the bedroom calisthenics are carried out - only that they occur - and they are only a small part of the overarching story line.) I was surprised, and incredibly pleased, to follow the story of Matia, her struggles, losses and pain, but also her deep conviction and drive to do the right thing, no matter the pain it caused her. Ms. Blain has written a story with solid character development and world building, two of the most important things I look for in books. Her writing is focused and crisp, and her development of Matia, especially, is probably the best representation of a driven, dedicated, loving young woman of character and strength.
